I’m NOT disagreeing with anything you said when I say this, but from my non-2700 PoV some classes & specs just straight hard counter others, i.e. DKs vs Casters, Frost Mages vs Warrior etc. This might have been toned down across all the expacs now with each class gaining gap closers, interrupts, whatever it may be that made them struggle before. But to me that type of class design and balance is absolutely warranted and should be in this game.
Now I don’t really know what it is exactly about DH currently that makes them be able to bend me over their knee and have their way but straight up I don’t know if an equally geared and skilled druid of any spec can beat a DH if both people play optimally. Are you beating 2400+ DHs regularly as balance?? If you are, please tell me how and what you need to do because I just can’t figure it out. I said above that I only play feral so it might not be fully applicable to my own play but hopefully it’s just regular druid things lol. Seriously tho. DH’s are satan right now. Help. SOS.
